directory, and copying the contents of the template home directory
/usr/ast into it. The user-id of this new user will be the first free
number not less than 10. The password is initially empty, the full name
must be set, and the shell is the Bourne Shell, /bin/sh . Use passwd ,
chfn , and chsh to change.
